  • Ixigo Industry Overview

Industry Statistics

  • Online Travel Agency (OTA) is a web-based marketplace that allows consumers to research and book travel products and services, including hotels, flights, cars, tours, cruises, activities, and more, directly with travel suppliers. Every day, millions of travelers around the world use OTAs to plan leisure and business travel.
  • The Indian OTA industry increased from a gross booking revenue of ₹ 284 billion in 2015 to ₹ 978 billion in Fiscal 2020, registering an impressive CAGR of 28% during the same period. COVID slumped the growth in Fiscal 2021, especially on account of the slow revival of international passenger traffic as well as a decrease in the market size of the hotel industry.
  • However, the OTA industry is expected to bounce back due to pent-up demand and accelerate especially in rail and bus segments, reaching ₹ 1,782 billion in the year 2024, with a CAGR of 16% for the forecast period. The growth of the OTA market is expected to be even faster than the overall online market.

Segmentation Within the Overall Indian OTA Industry:

  • Airlines: Airlines have lost their dominance in terms of revenue contribution in the ticketing segment for OTAs. In Fiscal 2020, for the OTA industry, as represented by the top 3 listed players, airlines contributed less net revenues than hospitality. Though still accounting for over 65% of gross booking values, and increasing in volume of transactions, the declining margins to just 8% are reducing the overall contribution of this segment in revenue share. As a result, OTAs have been shifting focus to other higher-margin segments like hospitality and bus modes. 
  • Hotel: The share of hospitality in the OTA industry is increasing both in terms of value and volume. Hotel bookings contributed 44% of all net revenues in Fiscal 2020. It is the next frontier of competition for all OTAs in India as it's one of the two fastest growing online travel segments with a CAGR in the forecast period of over 20%.
  • Rail: The volume of railway ticket booking through OTAs however has been rising significantly as their penetration into tier-II & III cities increases. Most OTAs are entering the Rail segment to extend their product offering to a full stack and explore the untapped potential of this segment.
  • Bus: The Bus segment is highly underpenetrated by OTAs and represents an increasing segment in terms of volume. The bus is the fastest growing online travel segment, with a forecasted CAGR for 2021-24 more than 25%.

Growth Drivers:

  • For users to conveniently utilize apps and book tickets online, telecommunications firms are extending 4G services in rural areas with greater connectivity and speed.
  • Online payments have become reliable and convenient as a result of the exponential rise of UPI and other digital payment methods.
  • Due to increased discounts from the OTAs themselves as well as deals via partnerships with other banking and payment methods, OTAs can offer competitive pricing.

Peers:

  • Peers of the company include Make my trip, Yatra, Ease my trip, etc.

Future Prospects

  • The overall travel market in India has strong industry fundamentals and is expected to grow 7% till 2025. The prospects of online travel growth are even stronger at 12% in the next 5 years given the internet and smartphone penetration, exponential growth in digital payment, shifting traveler demographics and nature of the evolving Indian traveler.
  • The OTA industry is expected to ride the wave of digitization of Indian travel, and is expected to grow at 15% for the next four years, double that of the economic growth of the country. This growth will be led by OTA growth in hospitality and buses segments which have a projected CAGR forecasted at over 20-25% until 2024. Volume growth is expected from railways as OTAs tap the huge unreserved segment of the rail sector.

Government Initiatives

  • Under the UDAN scheme for airlines, in the last 5 years, almost 35 airports have become functional. The National Rail Plan 2030 announced an increase in railway tracks and the introduction of some new AC chair car trains. However, the budgetary outlay and progress by the Ministry of Road and Transport to construct 65,000 kms of national highways has been substantial.
  • Swadesh Darshan: This scheme was launched by the government to promote the development of theme-based circuits, such as the Himalayan Circuit, Coastal Circuit, and Buddhist Circuit. ₹ 60,357 mn has been sanctioned under this scheme for 77 projects.
  • The Pilgrimage Rejuvenation and Spiritual Augmentation Drive (PRASHAD): was introduced to focus on developing pilgrimage destinations. For this purpose, 58 destinations have been identified in all states.

Ixigo Strengths

  • Company has generated total revenue of INR 385Cr. and shown 178% y-o-year growth in FY22.
  • Company is in the phase of expansion and till know has acquired 3 companies, to increase the customer base and penetration across tire 2 cities  
  • Monthly active users of the company are around 3.8Cr which is the highest among private peers.
  • Gross Transaction Value (GTV) per employee is one of the measures to know the revenue contribution of employees, ixigo exhibited the highest GTV per employee ratio of ₹ 125 mn. This is on account of their significant GTV growth of the year as well as the lowest employee strength by far in the industry. In FY22 the total GTV increased 160.69% over the year which was from  Rs. 2153 Cr. in FY21 to Rs. 5614 Cr.

Ixigo Shortcomings

  • The company's advertising expenses increased by more than 550% in FY22 compared to FY21,but the revenue of the company hasn't grown at that level, which had an influence on the company's finances and caused it to become a loss maker. This shows the inefficiency of management.

Ixigo Opportunities

  • Every day, millions of travelers around the world use OTAs to plan leisure and business travel. So company has good opportunity to grow in coming years.
  • The number of people accessing the internet daily has grown by 30 Mn from March 2019 to March 2020 in rural parts of India while the number of mobile connections in India increased by 23 Mn at a rate of 2.1% between January 2020 and January 2021. By 2021, internet penetration taken up by mobile subscribers was 96.71%.So it will help to generate the user base from tire-2 cities. 

Ixigo Threats

  • The biggest challenge for the company is to tide over the muted demand of the current COVID pandemic in the most creative ways by focusing on high growth segments. In the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021, rail had recovered to 46%, air to 71% and bus to 40% of their pre COVID-19 volumes of the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2020. Though full recovery is expected in the next six months, pace of recovery will differ across sectors.
  • Increasing market share in relatively higher margin segments remains a challenge for company as both larger chain hotels and direct airlines focus on reaching their customers directly.
  • Increasing competition from international OTAs in the hospitality sector.
